Burger Patties:

  • 16 ounces ground chicken
  • 1/8 cup curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger powder
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup pepper jelly
  • 12 slider buns
  • 1/2 cup arugula

Tropical Relish:

  • 1 red bell pepper cut in cubes
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks fresh or canned
  • 1 Spanish onion cut in cubes
  • 1 tbs olive oil



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place red pepper, onion, and pineapple on a lined cookie sheet and toss with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tender. Broil on high for 5 minutes until fruits and vegetables are slightly charred. Place roasted fruit and vegetables in a food processor with salt and pepper to taste. Pulse a few times until you have a chunky, tropical relish. 
  • In a large bowl combine ground chicken, curry powder, ground ginger powder, salt, black pepper, chopped scallions and 1/4 cup tropical relish. Mix meat until all ingredients are evenly combined. Form 12 slider patties with the meat. 
  • In a medium-high heat skillet cook each burger 2-3 minutes per side. Top each burger with 1/2 tsp pepper jelly, reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook 1 minute until pepper jelly melts to coat each burger. 
  • Assemble burgers by topping toasted slider buns with arugula, burgers and relish.  Enjoy!
